I'm really glad Adrian's been getting into the True Spirit of the Snarkatron this holiday season.

    I like this person's prose.

    Where can I read more?

      @jennyholzermom is the authority, sort of.

        This will do.

        Now to just get xscreensaver to grok RSS text.

        Or to fire up the old TI Silentwriter teletype, and teach it to read Twitter with a Raspberry Pi Zero. Maybe, with the continuous-roll paper spewing out of a mail slot.

        Or some variation thereof.

        (Note to self: Find place with mail slot, with a porch roof over said slot. Move there.)

    "This Be The Verse" by Philip Larkin

    They fuck you up, your mum and dad.
    They may not mean to, but they do.
    They fill you with the faults they had
    And add some extra, just for you.

    But they were fucked up in their turn
    By fools in old-style hats and coats,
    Who half the time were soppy-stern
    And half at one another’s throats.

    Man hands on misery to man.
    It deepens like a coastal shelf.
    Get out as early as you can,
    And don’t have any kids yourself.

    Maybe there should be a snarkatron xscreensaver module - with an option to link directly to the same data source as the real thing.
